My dear friend Sulekha Rawat wrote this for me when I lost my sister on the 24th of Feburary,2011.
Thank you Sulekha…
She will be Okay….
A dear friend suffered a personal tragedy yesterday and my heartfelt sympathies are with her and the bereaved family. I spoke with her today and am so relieved to know that my friend will be okay, how do I know this, you ask? I know, because she is a strong woman, all women are built this way; they show their steely resolve to face all odds and come out a winner. She is not only a sister but also a daughter, mother, aunt and guardian all rolled into one brave soul. She has lost a dear sister but not her love; she cannot see her but can definitely feel her presence and unconditional love and support always. She will be okay because she knows she has to look after the loved ones left behind and be a pillar of strength for them. She has to console and comfort the old and nourish and protect the young, she will be okay because she loved her sister so much that her going away has made her realize how much real and true love means to a person. She will definitely miss her but she will remember her with a smile and happy tears in her eyes, remember the happier times spent together and the love they shared. May her sister’s soul rest in peace and may God give my friend the strength to carry on. God Bless us all.
